The Story of Antoine Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann was born on March 21, 1991, in Macon, France. His father was a wealthy and politically powerful man who held a prominent place in the French political landscape.
Antoine tried to join the Olympique Lyonnais, but was turned down due to his short height and low weight. Frustrated, Antoine turned to local club UF Macon instead. Although short stature was a major obstacle to his selection into more youth academies, Antoine never gave up.
In April 2010, Real Sociedad was forced to finally sign an official contract with Antoine and keep him in the team until 2015. His stunning performance in the final league game of the 2012-13 season saw the team qualify for the Champions League for the first time in nearly a decade.
In 2014, Antoine officially joined Madrid and signed a six-year contract. In 2015, he played in La Liga. Antoine was named La Liga's Player of the Month in January 2015, despite making just three of his five appearances for Real Madrid. By the end of the 2014-15 season, Antoine had scored 22 goals, and as such, he was the only Atletico player to be named Team of the Year at the LFP Awards. He joins Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the team's third striker.
In July 2016, his contract with Atlético de Madrid was further extended until 2021. There was much speculation in June 2017 that he would be leaving Atlético Madrid as his excellent performances were seen by more clubs. However, he quickly put an end to the rumors - signing another contract with Atletico Madrid, deciding to stay with the team until 2022.
In the 2014 FIFA World Cup, he played for the French team and performed very well. At Euro 2016, his performances peaked. Despite his side's elimination, Antoine's performances did not go unnoticed, and he was announced as the Golden Boot winner.
